Highways and Transport Theatre
This theatre looks at the day-to-day issues surrounding the industry, hosted in association with a number of key industry bodies.
On Tuesday the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transport will discuss, among other things, skills and training as well as sharing experience. Later in the day ADEPT will concentrate on safety, asset management, procurement and collaboration.
On Wednesday the Institute of Asphalt Technology will discuss materials and resources, processes and the environment and new technology, followed by ITS (UK) discussing more about using technology in traffic management and multi-modal integration. Finally the Institute of Highway Engineers will host a session on signals, lighting, maintenance and winter.
On Thursday’s Futures Day the theatre is dedicated to the next generation of workers in the industry. We will hear about ideas for recruitment, have a discussion from industry leaders who will give background on how their careers led them to where they are now, discuss “degree or not degree – that is the question” focusing on the best form of training and also hear from the Traffex/ITS (UK) student essay winners.
